Cards prepare for Frontier League meet
The Eudora Middle School track team has generated a great deal of momentum heading into Saturday's Frontier League junior high meet at Paola.
Field events start at 9 a.m. and preliminaries begin at 9:45 a.m.
The finals will begin one hour after the preliminaries end. Judging by this week's performances, EMS stands a pretty good chance at being well represented in the finals.
The Cardinals had 11 first-place finishes at Monday's Eudora Invitational Meet.
Leading the way was eighth-grader Mark Lister, who won the 100- and 200-meter events, while the eighth-grade boys also got wins from Cory England in the discus and the medley and mile relay teams.
Lauren Kracl won the eighth-grade girls high-jump competition, while the seventh-grade girls won the 4x100 relay. High jumper Garrett Wornkey and Jeremie Bryant, who won the 800-meter run, paced the seventh-grade boys. The seventh-grade boys also won the 4x200 relay in addition to the mile relay, where the team of Bryant, William Rodriguez, Massey and Wornkey set a new school record.
